  1. Wonderful post, Stuart! I see you're using an S8, did not know it could produce this level of detail, quite impressive. Posted 5 years ago
    1. Thanks Ferdy! Yes, I'm very impressed with the quality of the images and videos on the S8, however.... The focus and auto focus, especially when dealing with close ups leaves a lot to be desired when compared my old phone the S6. Posted 5 years ago
